Barbara Miller Reiss
Our Mom and Nana loved her family, her friends, her country and the Lord. She lived a long life, rich with memories and she loved laughter, even amidst the tears. Those who knew Barbara, appreciated her fine wit, cleverness, humor and engaging conversation. She was loved by many. She leaves her children, Jeffrey, Karen Strickland (Joe), Gregg (Emiko) and Lynne (Robert). Also surviving are grandchildren, Amie Adair (Tyler) Kara Home (Bryn) and Matthew Strickland as well as Luke, Audrey and James Reiss, Amanda Bailey (Jonathon) and great grandsons Nikolai and Griffin Bailey.
A memorial mass was held at Saint Raphael Catholic church on May 13th with planned internment at Holy Cross Cemetery, Los Angeles next to her beloved husband, Leonard, who predeceased her in death in 1978. In lieu of flowers, we request contributions to Hospice or Food From the Heart of Santa Barbara.
